How To Leave London

Compelling stories from 25 couples, families and individuals who have left the city (and still kept their work, their inspiration and their social lives) prove there are many benefits to life outside the M25 beyond simply more space and better air. Full of stunning photography, good advice, beautiful interiors and inspiring tales from a wide variety of people - single young professionals, retired couples, freelancers, office workers, renters and home-owners - this book may just tempt you to escape the capital's gravitational pull...
